1. Mix together all the dry ingredients including the beetroot or whichever fruit or vegetable you've chosen.

2. Mix together all the wet ingredients with the crushed pineapple.

3. Mix together both sets of ingredients, pour into a ring tin and bake at 180 C for around 45 min (but we baked for 10 minutes longer).

4. Test with skewer and see if it comes out clean.

5. Allow to cool for around 20 minutes in the baking tin before turning out onto a cooling rack.

So delicious even withour frosting, and has so many options. Kids love this and adults do too.
